to bring up. harry reid -- >> he guaranteed a vote. >> bless his heart. i do not know if there will be a procedural matter. is a motion to proceed, which is what is called, that may be the vote. >> you spoke of your influence. talk what will likely be voted on the store. how much influence you can you have in washington compared to the nra? do you think you're gaining ground as more influential? >> i do not have a way to measure that. we're happy to work with the senators that are taking the lead on this. we're very pleased that these were people that we had backed heavily. we've made the right decision during the campaign. many oppose candidates who were from the republican establishment. we are looking for people that are not afraid to go and challenge the establishment. this filibuster probably is .oing that in the senate at the same kind of thing seems to be happening. we are getting what we hoped. we are delighted that we identify them in time to help them and their campaigns. these are people that are operation on their convictions. >> these are? one.nator cruz w
. what will harry reid ultimately do tomorrow? will he bring up a democratic bill that has the universal background checks or will he wait for joe manchesteron and patrick toomey to come one some sort of compromise? a sticking point on any compromise is the idea of private sellers keeping records checks of who they're selling to. mitch mcconnell said he had a problem with, if you wanted to sell a shotgun to your next door neighbor, do you have to do a background check on your next door neighbor? the home is by bringing toomey who is very much a spefrt has to win in 2016, he has to do well in suburban areas, will he give cover by allowing some sort of compromise with private sellers with manchin that allows a larger bill to go forward. you've already seen that bloc of 14 republican that's don't want to see any type of new gun control. they're lining up behind that. look at the name you see there. cruz, lee, rand paul, the red meat of the conservative base. our own kasey said that there should not be too much put on the these manchin and toomey talks. tomorrow will be a big day. >> in this
question up here, of course, is how senator harry reid, the majority leader, is going to proceed on gun legislation. i just spoke with some of his top aides and they say that he's going to decide by the end of the day how to proceed. so senators joe manchin and pat toomey, who have been talking about a compromise, they really have until the end of the day to try to hammer something out. if reid decides to go forward in a certain way, we could see a vote on thursday. otherwise, we might have to wait into next week. and we're also waiting to see how republicans are going to conduct that filibuster. they haven't said whether or not they're going to stand on the floor like rand paul did on drones, but they haven't eliminated that possibility. so we could see that in the coming days. >> a lot of moving parts there. perry, as casey was mentioning, we do have that issue of the republicans trying to filibuster, that group of 13. take a listen to what was said here by harry reid. >> those have been yelling the most for this free and open debate are the people sent me a letter saying we're going
doesn't understand that. and that's why harry reid is having such a difficult time getting any sort of bill through the senate. >> stuart: did newtown not change the political equation? >> not out in the country, i don't think he it did. >> for a while it did, but you're already seeing, at least according to the most recent wall street journal/nbc poll, but that the demand for gun controls is being reduced, coming down dramatically over the last month and part of it is the public looking what's happening. the president says it's not about me, it's not about politics, but look at what the bills would do. all of these recent shootings were about mentally ill people shooting unarmed victims. there's nothing in either of the toomey amendment or the underlying bill that addresses this tough question of how do you keep guns out of the hands of mentally ill people. there's also nothing about violence in the media. i'm not saying i want to control the media, but if you want to talk about why do these things happen, campbell brown had an interesting op-ed for us recently going through the fa
are terrible and we're forgetting that harry reid is in charge of the senate. if the president saying we have to have a vote. pick up a phone and call harry reid and they're both from the same party. what's wrong with that? why aren't we hearing that? why isn't there a front page piece saying where is harry reid. >> the national journal ran a piece and jumped the gun and said that the n.r.a. had already won so it and the all one way or the other. the national journal came out with this, you know, the n.r.a. wins this. that's just not true. >> i want to talk about the newtown families and our hearts go out to them and can't imagine what they're going through. it's a week now and they've appeared on cnn and had a big photo spread in people magazine. >> and the president flew to connecticut and he we saw the speech and they lobbied lawmakers on capitol hill. what do you think about the way the newtown family has allowed itself to be put out there and sort of used for political purposes? >> it's the way things work now and it has been extremely effective. mike allen and jim vandheim in politico h
angle to run for senate in nevada. sharron angle was going to try to unseat harry reid in nevada. she was antiestablishment, tea party endorsed, super, super conservative, and this race in nevada was supposed to be a cake walk. harry reid's numbers were really bad. everybody expected harry reid to lose his job. everybody knew that the 2010 election was going very republican overall and harry reid was seen as the most vulnerable senator on the democratic side. sharron angle could not lose this race. sharron angle lost that race, and pinpointing exactly where her platform went wrong and how her behavior as a candidate lost the election, frankly, it's impossible to pinpoint, even in retrospect, because the where did i go wrong possibilities are limitless possibilities. was it when sharron angle proposed the basis for u.s. currency should be metals and oils, was it her position of even having a department of education was a violence of constitution? it's hard to say, really. but this did not help. >> thomas jefferson said it's good for our country to have a revolution every 20 years. i ho
to backamo. >> there is no question that if you get to a position like mitch mcconnell or like harry reid, remember in his 2010 race, everybody said this old boxer from nevada. mitch mcconnell and harry reid cut from very similar cloths in the way that you just, you don't pick a fight with them unless you really feel like you want to get into a knife fight. you know it will be that. that they will pick you apart. mitch mcconnell will be somebody who is going to fight for that. fight for that job and he is a tough political operator. and there is no other reason why you get to be someplace like being senate minority leader without having a tough skin. >> thank you. now let me bring in nbc justice correspondent pete williams with more. as i understand it, there has to be a formal request made to the fbi to investigate? you obviously know this better than anyone. what is the procedure here for the fbi or any federal investigators to get involved here? >> well, they've done it. they've called the u.s. attorney in louisville. and a federal official says that the fbi is looking into these alleg
to the biggest change in u.s. gun law in nearly 20 years. majority leader harry reid scheduled a vote for thursday. >> there are strong feelings and deep disagreements about some of the measures. but every one deserves a vote, yes or no, no hiding. no running from an issue that has captivated america. >> as many as 14 republican senators including minority leader mitch mcconnell vowed to filibuster the legislation. a mounting number of senators within the gop now appear willing to break with leadership and allow debate to move forward. >>> a lone star college student was arrested after his stabbing that left 14 people injured. 20-year-old dylan quick told police he'd been planning at tack for some time and that he fantasized about stabbing people for years. one student said he saw police chasing quick and joined in snapping this photo of quick while he was restrained on the ground. officials say quick used a razor like knife to attack victims, some of whom were stabbed in the neck and face. quick is charged with three counts of aggravated assault and is due in court on thursday. >>> t
to do something. again, the longer it harry reid allows the debate to go, the more permits to have an up or down vote. all we're trying to do is make sure there is thoughtful consideration of this and that second amendment rights are not infringed upon. if that happens, hats they will hold on. this is about process. long as there is, i'm all for it. >> both chambers of congress will return on monday. you can watch of the house live at noon on c-span and the senate live at 2 p.m. on c-span 2 would legislative work on the gun bill starting on tuesday. >> this week, the president's weekly address is given by francine wheeler. the mother of a six-year-old boy ,ho was killed in the nude town connecticut elementary shooting. she calls for action on new gun- control laws. this is the first time someone other than president obama or vice president biden has delivered the weekly address. the republican i just is given by the representative of indiana. she or the president to work with republicans to balance the urges theshe president to work with republicans to bounce a budget. >> hi. as you have
for are not controversial measures but is it fair to say that harry reid has given the senators who were afraid of the vote cover by letting the filibuster still run the congress? or at least the senate? >> look, i think, you know, har harry reid said it was a big mistake not to reform the filibuster. i imagine he's seeing that again whether it is judicial nominations or this legislation. as far as i can tell, there does not seem to be a strong desire by the republicans to filibuster. so i think that harry reid is headed to bring a bill to the floor he doesn't think it could pass. and you know, look, harry reid two years ago was really trying to woo the nra vote. i don't know if that's driving him now but he probably has more sensitivity than he probably should have to other senators who are worried about the nra. >> john: no disrespect to the politicians but colin don't you think if there is ever an issue you're willing to lose your job over, it is an issue like saving american lives. when you think about how president obama has been asking the public to push legislators call them and e-mail and advocate.
. harry reid is weighing what to do. >> i hope republicans will stop trying to shut down debate, start engaging on the tough issues we were sent to washington to tackle. >> even background checks, which are supported by nine in 10 americans face strong opposition. cenk: 90% of americans, what difference does it make? the republicans are looking to filibuster it anyway and joe biden's not going to let them get away with it. >> 13 senators said i will filibuster proceeding on dealing with this national tragedy. won't even proceed. now maybe between now and the time it gets on the floor, they will ask, my mother will say they will have seen the light. maybe that will change. what an embarrassing thing to say! cenk: you know, it's refreshing to see democrats fighting back this hard. on a tiny little thing background checks. we told you over 90% of americans agree with it, but when the republicans usually go to do a filibuster, democrats usually cave. in this case, at least they're putting a fight up. in fact, president obama wow he took a really interesting move after speaking in connectic
begins. we heard yesterday from harry reid, who put the bill on the floor, and is putting pressure on republicans, including 13 senators who have announced that they will oppose the legislation. this is done -- this is from " the new york daily news," "give us a vote." for republicans, 202-585-3881. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. we welcome our audience on c- span radio, heard coast-to-coast on xm radio. what is on your mind this morning? tyrone? go ahead. caller to a good morning. host: good morning. caller: republicans are coming back to work and did not do anything to help this president. it should not be this way. we are all god's people. host: is it racism or partisan politics? ander: is partisan politics racism. host: jack, what is on your mind? caller: i wanted to comment on the gun ban. i believe the constitution is the most important thing in this country at this point in time. i am very sorry about the people that were killed. but i still believe that we need to keep the constitution in -- constitution intact. the call.k you for the front pag
. as majority leader harry reid given any indication on whether there would be a limit on the number of amendments? .uest: that is the big unknown there were enough republicans that voted for this that he is going to allow just about everything. i think he understands that not only are republicans interested in that, but there are enough democrats interested in that. guns is an issue that breaks down really more over geography than ideology. it has a lot of democrats facing reelection in a rural and midwestern states, guys like -- mary landrieu of louisiana, mark begich of alaska, they need to be able to show their constituents that they were part of a fair and open and exhaustive debate on this issue so that just about every single proposal out there is considered, and in the end, depending on what is in the final bill, they will cast a vote. i think he understands that enough democrats will say, you have to allow certain votes on some of the controversial amendments on either side of the issue in order to get my vote. he has said most of this week come if you have an idea to streng
, i think there will be second-guessing on the democrats' strategy. harry reid appears to go to an early vote. there was never an attempt to make this a real filibuster to challenge. once the 13 people said they were going to filibuster, ackground checks, that was challenge. ok, let's go to the mattresses. 60 days, 60 nights like we did on civil rights and make them stand up and defend that position. instead of allowing it to .ecome a pressure thing the sponsors said if the nra had not scored this and said this is what they're going to make their graydon, 15 senators would have voted differently. i do not know if he is right. . i think that tells you something. he said iforning this vote had taken place in january instead of april, it would have been a different story. because it dragged out it became the bloomberg-obama background check. when that happened, it never had a chance. >> timing means a lot. i am not sure whether republicans, any republicans will pay a price for this, or any democrats. i think charles had it right. it is a one issue vote for people who view their
in secret negotiations to exempt themselves and their aides from obamacare exchanges. harry reid flatly kenz this comment as one of chief arc tickets announces his retirement but not before issuing this warning to kathleen sebelius about the healthcare's roll out. >> i ee a huge train wreck. i don't see any results yet. what can you do to help all these people around the country, what in the world do i do? i don't know what to do. >> paul: editorial page editor james free man and joe rago join us with more. james, say it ain't so, exempting themselves from obamacare? >> you have to remind yourself the clip from marcus, that is one of guys that liked it when it passed. he helped write the bill. basically this as been anest for years ever since they have been working on the bill wanting to make sure this wonderful experiment they are about to impose on american people doesn't hit members of congress and their staff. negotiations may be a strong word. i'm told that democrats harry reid, hoyer reached out to republicans. the democrats' view they are clarifying that part of obamacare they are als
down with long time aid to harry reid jim manly. >> the nra is still a very powerful force in this country. they have four million members who are very, very determined to get their way. >> and how can a nation of 300 million compete with that? >> it's difficult to understand sometime, isn't it but the fact of the mat certificate that i've got to think long and hard before you support gun control legislation because you are take on the nra can be political suicide. >> and the democratic party is working tirelessly to reduce the rate of political suicide among its members. surely australian politicians weren't stupid enough to end their political lives for gun control. >> well, i did. >> what? >> i did. >> you did what? >> i took the stand. i was prepared to face the political consequences, and we delivered gun control. >> meets rob borebich former premier of queensland, australia's most conservative state. in 1996 he was instrumental in enacting gun control, knowing it would cost him his political career in the next election. >> we paid a high political price but we did the
have a lot of tape. >> true success is a lifelong politician like harry reid whose watered down gun legislation was carefully designed to protect those who needed it most. >> he has a responsibility as the democratic leader to protect the caucus. >> the caucus needs to be protected, the caucus does. >> they need to be protected politically. >> how many political careers have been tragically ended by gun control. >> we've lost some good folks over the years because of their views. >> right. you have a perfectly healthy political career and then bang. >> just like that. >> which means former australia prime minister john howard has blood on his hands. >> dow ever think about the innocent victims of your gun control. >> there were no innocent victims of my-- there were no victims at all. there is the photograph of rob, he was incredibly courageous supporting our laws. >> but politically he is dead, bang, just like that. >> we lost an election as we all do at some point. >> but howard is not alone. his deputy prime minister tim fisher also refuses to accept responsibility for these care
of the day. and tonight it's, yeah sure of the day. our oh so bendable senate majority leader harry reid said he's losing pay against with g.o.p. obstruction with judicial nominees. he's threatening to use the so-called nuclear option again the senate filibuster. here's what he told the nevada public radio friday. >> we as a body have the power on any given day to change the rules with a simple majority. i will do that if necessary. >> john: indeed, we do have the power as long as it's over judicial nominees and not against the nra's attempt to block any meaningful or popular gun reform. where have we heard that before about the nuclear option for filibuster. oh that's right. you were supposed to reform the filibuster at the start of the senate session as promised? is harry reid is going to do something? i refuse to believe it because i will not have my party broken again. prove me wrong harry. >>> it appears that immigration reform has been put on a remarkably fast track. the major criticism about the bill being burn issued by the gang of eight say its moving too fast. this they did a joint
leader harry reid started the day by calling on republicans to vote for a proposed gun safety bill. and he cited his own very personal experience with gun violence. >> sometimes people with a passion will purchase a handgun to do bad things with it. some even kill themselves. waiting a few days helps. >> michael: newtown families have said the exact same thing making common sense changes to laws might have made the difference for their children. and today 11 of those family members met with vice president joe biden before heading to capitol hill. biden described what they told him, and in no uncertain terms he called on congress to act. >> one remarkable woman who has a background in psychology and psychiatry said, you know, how--how do they explain not doing anything? my little girl, my baby was hiding in a bathroom, and she got shot through the heart. now it's time for every man and woman in the senate to stand up and say yay or nay i'm for or i'm against. >> michael: but in washington as we have come to learn, a yay or nay vote is anything but simple. 14 republican senators led
control legislation for two weeks instead of next week as planned. harry reid said it would be the number one priority when he returned this coming monday. he has excluded dianne finestein's web upon's ban bash weapons' ban and he said back ground checks should become universal including those at gun shows. one reason president barack obama is speaking is the state recently passed laws to expand gun background checks and limit the number of magazines they can hold. and president barack obama leaves for colorado three hours from now and we will have more on his agenda when i see you next hour. kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> meantime connecticut state legislature is said to vote on some of the toughest laws in the country. if it becomes law, no firearm can be sold unless the buyer passes a background check. the list of band assault weapons will expand and the sale of purchase of magazines will be prohibited because of the what happened in sandy hook elementary school shooting where a gunman killed many people. >>> there is

(vo) she's joy behar. >>current will let me say anything. >> john: welcome back. finally it's time for tonight's f-bomb. the latest ppp poll reveals that 13% of americans including 22% of mitt romney voters believe president obama is the antichrist. but believing obama is the demonic supernatural being is not nothing. some think that because his middle name is hussein. some think he's the antichrist because t

forfwhard the senate. are democrats confident harry reid can get quick votes and victories on both? >> not at all. harry reid is from a red state that very much favors loose restrictions on firearms that very much favors the assault weapon's ban, it is going to be a tough bridging of the gap for him either way. >> michael: jim on guns almost every recent opinion poll has found wide-spread support for background checks. you wrote about this. is the nra now losing relevancy with being so out of touch with what the american people want? >> not necessarily with their own base. i think they are still pandering to their constituents fairly effectively. which is why i think there are still a lot of nervous legislators. i'm not so sure particularly on background checks maybe something on straw purchases, but when senator coburn the gynecologist personed politician seems to have drawn his line in the sand on the government keeping a quote registry or keeping anything for more than a nano second, that raises a lot of questions on whether the other folks can come up wi
that are getting cold feet. senator harry reid spoke about that and also about feinstein amendment on assault weapons. >> i want people to have the ability to vote on assault weapons and mental health and safety in schools and federal trafficking, clips and everything. knui can't do that until there is a bill on the floor. right now the amendment using optmistic numbers are less than 40 votes and that's not 60. >> so we'll bring in tucker carlson host of fox and friends weekend and charles lane opinion writer for the washington post . charles krauthammer. >> and so the president is out in denver and pushing this and the votes here on capitol hill don't seem to be lining up. >> not surprisingly. there are no evidence or serious person think it will do anything about gun violence. the colorado lawmaker congresswoman who is a lead sponsor to curtail high capacity magazine didn't know they could be reload thought it was the same as a bullet and there is growing opposition not only on the right but the left. an aclu outlined the problems with a background and private sales and records of the sales
and get ready for fireworks on capitol hill harry reid today announced he is holding a showdown on thursday on the efforts to roll back the second amendment and we will have a live report to talk to the congressman about the prospects of gun-control, so-called immigration reform and the president's budget. also mounting speculation that north korea could carry out a nuclear test or missile launch at any moment , fox news military analyst joins us on the worsening rhetoric and what action, if any the united states should take to make sure the conflict remains rhetorical. we have a busy day on capitol hill following the two week easter recess. battle lines forming over immigration reform and the president's long overdue budget as the president makes another attempt to get skeptical senate republicans. and henry has our report. >> one day before she reveals the new budget president obama faced more ink from his liberal allies. protest over the way inflation is counted with cuts in benefit sparked protest outside the white house. >> real democrats do not cut social security, medicar
leader harry reid voted no. that's procedural so he can vote to reverse the vote. it's a senate technique. president obama will be making remarks in the rose garden right there at 5:30 eastern, a few minutes from now. casey hunt and howard fineman. casey, you and i have been -- you've been helping me on the phone the last couple of days. it looks to me a pretty dreary result in that it looked like it was moving up before the horror in boston a week or two. i'm not sure, did it ever look to you like it was going to reach 60 and then fell back? or was it never really close enough to 60 to make it? >> the point at which we -- the mood up here said that it could reach 60 was really that vote that they held to start debate on the gun bill. that got more republican votes than folks up here had expected. it's kind of been a downhill slide ever since then. this coat, there were many more republicans this time around as you just showed who voted no on manchin/toomey at the end of the day, even though they voted to start this debate. >> then it goes back to howard and i. howard, you don't think tha
, specifically harry reid. he, you know, is a -- a pro-gun, you know, senator, who has had reservations about trying to helm this. the "new york times" asked the question how hard will reid push? and robert, i want to ask this of you, the quote is how tenacious mr. reid will be and whether he extracts votes one by one as he has for other legislation may determine the fate of the measures. the onus is on harry reid to push something forward, at least if the democrats want to have credit or credibility on the issue? >> well, yes and no the onus is on harry reid to be able to thread this needle. the problem is that that needle is very, very, very small to thread. the reason why is because, as we mentioned before, a couple of senators, democratic senators that are are in red states, arkansas, north carolina, so forth that have a very, very large gun culture in their states and they don't want to go against that. no question about that but can i go back to chris's point for a moment? i think he makes a very, very good point here. senator graham makes a good point we need tone force the current gun
on the right side of the screen, what you have is the end game here. harry reid has winnowed this down to only background checks and school safety. while laudable, is not gun regulation and doesn't deal with the access to guns and the flow of guns that you're describing. so where do you think we are versus harry reid and this plan that will move on the floor? is it enough that he's saying there will be amendments for these additional packages? or do you not think that will work? >> we were very disappointed when harry reid took senator feinstein's proposal off. we really admired her bill and wanted to see that happen. as president obama said, we deserve a vote. those kids in sandy hook deserve a vote and this is not fair. however, feinstein also said that the previous assault weapons ban passed on amendments. so maybe there is a chance here. if it doesn't happen though, we are not going to back down. our moms are strong. they are tenacious. we're not giving up. we will be here for 2014 and we will vote for people who vote with us. this is important. >> kim, as i'm sure you know, so-called assa
